  1. Line a bowl with a clean, sturdy towel. Grate cucumbers into the bowl. Gather towel around cucumber and squeeze as much liquid from the cucumbers as possible. Transfer cucumber to a colander and sprinkle 3/4 teaspoon salt over cucumber. Stir to evenly coat cucumber and allow to drain, 10 to 30 minutes.
  2. Mix cucumber, olive oil, vinegar, red onion, garlic, dill, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and ground black pepper together in a bowl.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Shallots can be used in place of the red onion, if desired.

Made as written and I wouldn't consider this a tzatziki but more of a cucumber chimichurri but a good one at that. This would pair well with many different things and one I will make again.

I agree - not a tzatziki but quite tasty. I didn't have enough cucumbers so I added some shredded zucchini. I love the crunch it adds.
